Description :Who is Jesus?

Prophet? Sage? Enlightened Being who showed the way to unity with God and freed us from the bonds of karma? A man who taught men how to care for women? A figment of Galilean mythmakers' pious imaginations? Or Saviour of the world?

How should we understand the teachers who compete with, yet sometimes strangely echo, the message Jesus taught: Lao Zi, Gandhi, Marx, Yogananda, or Confucius? What is the difference between Jesus changing water into wine and Buddha turning coals into bouquets of flowers? Did either ever happen?

Enlightening, disturbing, engagingly written, and full of surprises, Jesus and the Religions of Man lays out a remarkable challenge to skeptics. In the tradition of Augustine's City of God, the author knits together a complex mosaic of spiritual threads, modern psychology, and revolutionary ideals to reveal a single face, showing how the deepest truths converge in the life of Christ. He argues that Jesus is, as he claimed to be, "the Way, the Truth, and the Life," the salvation God has prepared for all peoples.
